    ESPY'S

    Who here thinks that the game against Oklahoma State will win Iowa state the ESPY for biggest upset of the year? Obviously it was the biggest upset in college football and I would say it is pretty much a no brainer for them to win it.

    I'd a very good chance of getting it. I think it would be pretty cool we did.

    Re: ESPY'S

    Chances are very good so far. But, it really depends on what happens the rest of the year in sports. We could still have some huge upsets in college basketball.
    If the ESPY's were right now, we'd win no doubt. Especially, considering the consequences of our upset and how it effected the entire college football world.

    Another thing to keep in mind is how fresh will this be in people's minds by next summer? If there's a big upset later in the year, that might stick in people's minds more than ours which would have happened almost 3/4 of a year earlier.

    Re: ESPY'S

    What's the cutoff for the "year"? Is it simply the calendar year?

    This is from wiki:
    athletic achievement and other sports-related performance during the calendar year preceding a given annual ceremony

    Re: ESPY'S

    Not a lot of time left for something to top it. I'm sure that there is stuff from earlier in the year, maybe VCU's Final Four run, but our game will easily be the freshest upset with probably the biggest implications. Really, ESPN should just rig the thing so they can get Rhoads on stage.

    VCU won biggest upset last year when they beat Kansas. I think the calender year thing wrong.. I believe its just 1 year running from July-July.

    Regardless of if ISU wins it, some of the guys and CPR will be nominated, and will make the trip. Which will be awesome and some good pub!

    You do recognize that the less they think of us and our program, the more likely we are to win this award (and then be called a "bad team" again on very prominent TV). I would much prefer "greatest comeback" or "best storming of the field." Hopefully, they will present us as "coming of age" in this game, not just getting lucky (or worse, taking advantage of OSU while it was "mourning," bah).

    Ya have to beat the best consistently for it not to be the biggest upset. Unfortunately we aren't able to do that yet. It's the biggest upset.
